The top of Leaf island summer

Author File Description
Agentx002
File Details
ROTWK Map: No
Number of Players: 3
One Ring: Yes
AI: Yes
Minimap:
This is a map I made shaped like a leaf, well the top of it, boundaries allow exploration of the top only and the small island at the top left. Soon coming is the entire island! With 8 player skirmish and a massive 800x600 size! (give or take a few hundred tiles on each side 1000x800, or so) Allowing bigger, more epic, battles! Combing more features like outposts, inns, more creeps, rivers, more AI features, lots of trees of course, and winter, fall, summer, and spring versions! But for now enjoy Leaf island top1.

And PLEASE comment after you have played this, or if you have problems with it, also THIS IS MY 2ND MAP EVER MAP WITH WORLDBUILDER, I AM A COMPLETE NOOB. I dont know how to install it exactly, I think you have to put unzip it and put it in your lord of the rings BFME2 maps folder located in your application data folder, anyway enjoy!

Sorry, I didn't pay attention to the borders too well, it ends up putting player 3's base half outside the map, a new version has been uploaded fixing this problem. Also the watter is a little too shallow, that has also been corrected.

With this update I fix most of the problems with the map, and instead of a makeshift island its more the way I wanted it to be. Fixed some AI nodes outside of the boundaries, other bugs resolved, fixed shipwrights in the water, and ring bearer in the water. Also the mini map file is old I haven't made a screenshot yet of new version yet.

It's playable for 2v1, but not really fun as there's too much empty space.

Balance: 2.5
Since the middle player gets more space, it has a chance against the opponents on the sides if he's good.

Creativity: 2
Well, it has an island.

Map Design: 1
Only two textures were used, and they weren't even blended with each other! Experiment with the blending tools in the editor, and also add more variety to the terrain textures.
You only used one prop (pine tree) accross the whole map, make it more interesting by adding rocks and bushes of different types.

Story/Instructions: 2.5
By uploading a pic you get an instant +1 to the instructions score.

Additional Comments:
AI markers are a leftover from BFME1 and don't work in BFME2. The island is only good to build more farms. You should really work on eye candy as well. There's a tutorial in this site which addresses eye candy ("make your map look like EA's maps").
